Use Cases: Build native Tableau connectors (.taco files) that users can leverage to connect to and visualize data from any database that supports ODBC or JDBC. Create a .taco file for a new source of data and connect with Desktop and Server like any other data source in Tableau!
Benefits: Connector Plugins provide a far simpler connection experience and more robust live query support as compared to ‘Other Databases (ODBC/JDBC), as well as a full test harness for testing and development. The Connector SDK allows for the customization of connector behavior, fine tuning of SQL query generation via dialects, creation of connection dialog menus, and the ability to easily package and distribute connectors to end users.
Level of Support: Tableau-supported
